I have seriously been putting this one off. I knew this post would be a tough one to write because it was at this time in our journey that shit got really real.
We were infertile. For real this time. It said so on our chart and everything. It wasn’t just a matter of popping a pill and having sex every other night anymore. That didn’t work. My body treated those pills like they were multi-vitamins. We had to call in the big guns.

I don’t know if it’s the looming presence of the holidays, or it’s because everyone around me seems to be pregnant, but man oh man, am I ever feeling things right now. I feel like everything is setting me off. I actually de-activated my facebook for a few weeks just to get away from all of the negativity.

This post is an inevitable one on an infertility blog, isn’t it? The super long and rambly post recounting every single step we’ve taken to get to where we are today on our long, exhausting infertility journey. Some will have a happy ending, some will be filled with words of hope, and some will be absolutely heart-breaking. I don’t know what this one will be. I haven’t finished writing it yet. So, here it is. I’ll try and keep it to the essentials, but I’ve been known to run on a tangent from time to time. I will say that some of my dates might be a little fuzzy as I never wrote anything down and I will go ahead and blame my PCOS here, as it has the tendency to give me serious brain fog.

Hi, I’m Jodie. Welcome to my blog!
If you couldn’t already tell by the title, I’m infertile. That’s right. I said it. I said it on the internet for all the world to read, and I’m not ashamed. Continue reading My very first infertility blog
